A Virginia Man Is Sentenced to Prison for a $1.3 Million Fraud Scheme and Child Pornography

A Glen Allen man was sentenced Friday to 151 months in prison for wire fraud, engaging in an unlawful monetary transaction using fraud proceeds and receipt of child pornography.

According to court documents, Gordon G. Miller III, 56, was the sole owner and operator of G3 Systems, Inc., a software engineering company, and G3i Ventures, LLC, purportedly a venture capital company. Starting around 2017, according to a release, Miller began to engage in overlapping fraud schemes to prevent his companies from going out of business and to maintain his lifestyle in the absence of legitimate income.

“Not only did the defendant defraud innocent victims through a million dollar investment fraud scheme designed to maintain his lifestyle, but he also painfully contributed to the exploitation of children by collecting thousands of materials depicting child sexual abuse,” Acting U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia (EDVA) Raj Parekh said. “We are thankful to the FBI and USPIS for their thorough investigative efforts and close partnership with our Office to hold the defendant accountable for his appalling conduct.”
